The Penny Bun is a fungus whose habitat consists of forests dominated by pine and spruce.
Sometimes on occasion, its cap can reach 30cm in diameter, a stem height up to 25cm and a total weight of 3kg !
This edible fungus is considered as one of the safest wild mushrooms to pick for the kitchen table, as there are no poisonous species that closely resemble it. But it is also an important food source for animals such as the Red Squirrel. So I would strongly advice to leave it where it belongs and that’s the forest !
Dutch name : Eekhoorntjesbrood
German name : Fichtensteinpilz
Latin name : Boletus edulis
A big thanks to aline64 for the kindly nomination of this picture.
great shot! i can almost smell the rich fungus aroma of penny bun – what an interesting english name! it sounds like a cartoon character to me ; )! and you captured a very impressive specimen here – what a bizarre-looking stem! it's a little as though it's wearing marlene dietrich pants… lg, sabine.
Ha un nome simpatico questo fungo e se piace molto agli animali specie agli scoiattoli si vede che è anche buonissimo,però ogni tanto qualcuno per un bel risotto lo possiamo prendere!!!
Ciao Mark,buona giornata.
Ein ganz feines Plätzchen hat er sich ausgesucht! Sehr schön sieht er aus und Du hattest feines LIcht! Das ganz kleines Zweiglein links zeigt, wo dieser Pilz seinen Standort hat!!!! Find auch den Bildschnitt super!!!!
Great shot, once again, perfect lightning and composition. This pic, all along with your explanations, makes it more valuable than the illustrations in my taxonomy books on mushrooms that I own :-)
Always a pleasure, kind regards, Massimo
Yes, a species well known and hunted for in areas around Moscow, with the reservation that all wild mushrooms are on the list of procsribed foods these days because oif their ability to acumulate noxious substances
A robust specimen here
This is about the only mushroom I would pick and eat without thinking twice..... except now after reading your advice. This one is a beauty, Mark ..... nicely lit, great sharp details, esp. the yellow veined side of the trunk!!
For me, fungi seem to have a strong connection to fairy tales, to gnomes and elves...
...and your photo somehow manages to introduce the viewer into this fairy tale word, the yellow colouring of this fungus underlines this impression.
I am waiting for the mythological creature to appear between the dark green plants of the background...
A Pro for details of the photo and for the imagination you conjured up.
